Hi all,

I am looking for similar functionality like cursor-item in oracle forms. I want to find out the panel and column in which my cursor is sitting. I checked both api component and api panel documentation. I could not find any. Someone please help me.

Hi George,

You can use api_application.getFocusedComponent API to retrieve the name of the focused component (cursor-item) in [panelDotComponentName] format.

Note that in the current version of Formspider, when the focus is on any component inside of a grid, this API returns the name of the grid (instead of the focused component inside of the grid). We already added a new option to this API which enables you to retrieve the name of the focused component inside of the grid in this case, it will be available in the next version of Formspider.

Hope this helps,
